life. those of us who work with babies are able to enjoy the rapid growth that occurs during the child's earliest years and form deep, affectionate bonds with each baby in our care-- bonds that we now know can impact a child for life. but sometimes, caring for infants and toddlers in a group setting can be demanding and difficult. how do we know when we are doing the right thing with our infants and toddlers? what if a baby won't stop crying? what if a toddler refuses to put on her jacket? and what about those magnificent temper tantrums for which 2-year-olds are so famous? hello. i'm joanne hendrick, the author of the whole child and your guide to this video series. in this program, we're going to look at some of the important components that go into providing consistent, one-on-one relationships with infants and toddlers in group settings. we'll observe some infant and toddler programs in private child-care centers, university lab schools, and family day-care homes, and we'll hear from infant and toddler teachers who offer practical advice for working with our youngest children

game. walk us through some of the other highlights. >> yeah. you know, it was all ravens before the power outage. you just know the conspiracy theories were gearing up saying the nfl is trying to stave us off of winning the super bowl. it was 28-6 when the power went out. it was all ravens before the power outage. after the power outage, the san francisco 49ers basically made a surge of their own and got back into the game. the game came down to four plays inside the 10 yard line. when it's a second year like collin kaepernick going against one of the best defenses in the league you knew the ravens were going to come out on top. ravens get the win, 34-31 and john harbaugh beats his brother jim. >> i don't know if i agree. i thought there was every reason the 49ers would put it in. they had all the momentum on their side. somehow the ravens stopped them. great to see you this morning. i'm sure a long night for you too. >> thank you. >> a little blurry-eyed this morning. there's lots of debate this morning about the biggest hit when it comes to all those super pricey super bowl commer
